sorry, i can´t translate that appropriately.
(edit -- but Arnden was so kind to send the proper translation:
"When the sun (of culture) is low, even dwarves will cast long shadows".
There you go! isn´t that just great? thanks Arnden!!)
it´s probably by Karl Kraus, but i saw it first in a Wagenbach Verlag book announcement flyer (ok, that´s not the right expression, where´s my English for Booksellers book??). anyway, i pointed it out to my sister and look what she did for me!
love it :-)
